The elicited-response false belief task has traditionally been considered as reliably indicating that children acquire an understanding of false belief around 4years of age. However, recent investigations using spontaneous-response tasks suggest that false belief understanding emerges much earlier. This leads to a developmental paradox: if young infants already understand false ...
